Is most accurate. The light colored cap is indicative of G.curtisii because for some reason the pileus cells in that species do not always fully mature leaving light colored mushrooms, sometimes nearly white.

G.meredithae is described as growing exclusively on Pinus sp. so if this was on a Pine tree then G.meredithae is a good guess. Though I am not convinced G.meredithae is a different species from G.curtisii, it is currently considered distinct.

what appears to be three bundled pine needles. Perhaps Pitch Pine? If this was found on Hemlock I would call it Ganoderma tsugae; found on Oak Then G. curtisii.
